* BreakawayPopHit: The sequel is most likely only remembered these days for the Music/BonJovi title track "Blaze of Glory". While the film itself debuted to tepid reviews and a weak opening (coming in third on its opening weekend behind ''Film/{{Ghost}}'' and ''Film/PresumedInnocent''), "Blaze" was a #1 Billboard Hit, nominated for an Academy Award (for Best Original Song) and spawned a top-selling solo album of the same name.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** The first movie accounts for one of the very few Creator/JamesHorner scores to be thrown out and unused.
** There was originally intended to be a sequence in the sequel where Chavez is riding on a horse while Billy fires a weapon near him. When it came time to shoot the scene, the horse got spooked when Emilio Estevez fired his weapon and knocked Lou Diamond Phillips off, then dragged him along the ground with a noose around his neck and tied to the saddlehorn, nearly killing him in the process. As a result, the scene was never refilmed and was left on the cutting room floor.
